Why would you want to force your computer to display a Blue Screen of Death?
If Ctrl-Alt-Del doesn’t work (known to geeks the world over as the three-finger salute), then a forced BSOD is your last resort. It’s kind of like pulling the plug, but slightly less harsh and much more likely to impress your nerd friends.
- Open the Registry Editor. ( Start >> Run >> type "regedit" >> Press Enter )
- Naviaget to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SYSTEM, then CurrentControlSet, then Services, then i8042prt, then Parameters (for the geeks, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\i8042prt\Parameters).
- Click Edit -> New -> DWORD Value or DWORD (32-bit) Value.
- Call the new value (without the quotes) "CrashOnCtrlScroll".
- Change the value to 1 (0x00000001)
- Close the Registry Editor and restart your computer.
- Hold down the right Control key then press the Scroll Lock key twice, then a blue screen should pop up.
